NYCC 2018: Star Wars The Black Series Marvel Action Figures for 2019

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 7, 2018

3672 After debuting as 3 3/4-inch figures, Hasbro now has 6-inch versions for you on the horizon!  Doctor Aphra will be jointed by 0-0-0 and BT-1 in summer 2019. That's a long ways off, but at least we know they're coming.  

For the uninitiated, these characters are found in the pages of Marvel's Darth Vader and Doctor Aphra comic books.

Clear some space and check out these new photos!

NYCC 2018: Star Wars The Black Series Exclusive Action Figures for 2019

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 7, 2018

3668 In 2019, Target will get a new version of Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper Disguise - note the slicked-back hair.   Slickback emeritus come complete with helmet, communicator, blaster, and what may well be some sort of sewage deco.  Delicious.

Joining him is GameStop's Rocket Trooper, which you probably also don't recognize.  The classic Stormtrooper body got a new helmet and a few other modifications for its release next year.

NYCC 2018: Star Wars The Vintage Collection Continues with Luke, Imperial Drivers

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 7, 2018

3665 One of the most requested figures from The Last Jedi is coming to 3 3/4-inch action figures!  Luke Skywalker (Crait) is his astral-projected form, mixing in various elements to a fraudulent, younger warrior.  He's joined by the Rogue One Imperial Assault Tank Commander, so at least we've got some freshness coming in Summer of 2019.

NYCC 2018: Star Wars Resistance Hasbro Action Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 4, 2018

3654 From the new TV show that isn't The Mandalorian and you don't seem interested in watching are some really cool-looking animated action figures.  Star Wars Resistance has a slate of new releases, and we're going to post them here now.

The younger characters with more colorful designs seem like we're absolutely nearing the "little brother phase" of franchises that go along and get handed down, looking for new audiences - but that doesn't mean they aren't nifty to look at, especially from The First Order side of things.   Here's hoping  Hasbro doesn't skimp on the vehicles for the show, which debuts next week.

(You weren't paying attention for that, were you?)

NYCC 2018: The Black Series 6-Inch Action Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 4, 2018

3651 Hasbro didn't have a lot new to reveal at New York Comic Con so far, but we got a few new shots of things you might have missed.  A deluxe General Grievous will join an utterly stunning Walgreens Exclusive Obi-Wan Kenobi from Clone Wars, 2003-style.  (Nicely done, Steve, I'm jealous.)  Both are 2019 items - expect Grievous in the first half and Kenobi late in 2019.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,521: Admiral Piett (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 2, 2018

A new figure with a lot of shared parts, the Admiral Piett (The Black Series 6-Inch) will go nicely with your General Veers.  The former is shared onlnie, the latter is now hitting a Walgreens theoretically near you.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,520: R5-D8 (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 27, 2018

Amazon's exclusive R5-D8 (The Black Series 6-Inch) is unlike previous versions of this specific droid.  Previous representations usually look a lot like R5-D4, with the blue arm panels.  Some even have yellow stripes in the red columns on the chest.  This one is colored almost exactly like the 1979 Kenner R4-D4, which doesn't mean that it necessarily matches the on-screen droid that served Jek Porkins - but there's not a lot of reference, either.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,519: 4-LOM (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 25, 2018

The 4-LOM (The Black Series 6-Inch) brings you another bounty hunter in the oh-so-popular larger scale - and the head is clear green, so shine a light through that for double-plus fun.   It includes a blaster.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,518: Princess Leia Organa (Hoth, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 20, 2018

She's new! Well, newish. The Princess Leia Organa (Hoth) is one of precious few new "classic" figures this year - and she has articulated boots!  And a weird blaster.  But hey, it's a new Leia - we don't get many of those.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,517: R2-F1P (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 18, 2018

From Disney, it's R2-F1P!  It looks a lot like other droids you've bought over the years, but it's slightly different.  Exciting is hardly the word I would use, but it's one more droid for your shelf.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,516: R5-232 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 13, 2018

One of the many figures you forgot existed and won't realize you don't have until 5 years from now, Disney's R5-232 (Droid Factory Line Look) can be bought right now.  It has a new restraining bolt, but otherwise is just a fancy redeco of a mold you've had access to for quite some time.  It's still one of the more interesting droids in this set based on Solo: A Star Wars StoryRead on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,515: Enfys Nest (Swoop Bike, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 11, 2018

Packed with her Swoop Bike, this Enfys Nest action figure looks great!  There's no removable helmet, but the sci-fi meets local flavor costume combines armor, fur, and a cape to bring to life a Zorro-like mantle that could be handed down and return in later installments. It's a pretty good figure with a pretty nice bike.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,514: Stormtrooper (Mimban, AT-DT, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 6, 2018

The Stormtrooper (Mimban, AT-DT) is really cool and comes with one of the best Hasbro 3 3/4-inch scale vehicles in recent memory - it explodes!   The figure doesn't, though - it's just a nice trooper that you'll wish you could easily build into your armies, and you can't.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,513: Han Solo (Kessel Run Millennium Falcon, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 4, 2018

The Han Solo (Kessel Run Millennium Falcon) may be popping up in a playset later this year - we'll need to wait and see how many changes they make - but you can get get it with a rather small Falcon right now!  The figure isn't bad - it's as Kenner-y as anything we've had in recent years.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,512: Chewbacca (Vandor-1 Playset, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 30, 2018

This Chewbacca (Vandor-1 Playset) is like the other one, but with goggles.  I think the growls are slightly different, but that may not be a selling point - the playset is, though.   Read on!
